The VPX450 “Phoenix” is a dual slot OpenVPX module with front and rear I/O. Using Intel’s most popular server processor, the CPU module supports dual Intel® Xeon® processors (E5-2699R v4), each with up to 22 physical cores with Hyper-Threading for a total of 88 logical cores operating at up to 2.2 GHz with the ability to TurboBoost up to 3.6 GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, each CPU is coupled with up to 512 GB (1024 GB total) of RAM organized in four banks. Each RAM bank consists of two DIMM arrays with Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides 2-bit error detection with 1-bit of correction, and supports up to 2133 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) between CPU and memory, resulting in an incredible peak memory transfer rate of over 80 GB/s.

The CPU module also provides two 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports via QSPF+ connectors for Fiber or Copper support. Additionally, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 ports, and one HDMI video port are provided on the CPU module’s front panel. For custom I/O, the SBC provides one XMC site with x8 PCIe Gen 3 with front and rear panel I/O, or a 2.5-inch enterprise class SSD device (on M.2) that is removable from the front with up to 2.4 GB/s read and 1.2 GB/s write speeds.

The SBC provides two Special Application Module (SAM™) PCIe-mini sites, which support two mSATA SSD devices that may be used to boot the operating system (OS) with RAID functions. Additional SAM I/O devices such as GPS, MIL-STD-1553, CANBus, or other PCI Express-Mini cards may be used as well.

Other I/O functions of the CPU module include: Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) for health monitoring and reporting via a dedicated Ethernet port, Trusted Platform Module (TPM), eight GPI/O lines, 16 MB BIOS Flash, 2 Kb of Field Replacement Unit (FRU) for confi guration data, Real Time Clock (RTC) with field replaceable battery, and voltage/temperature monitoring.

Zeroize (sanitize) support is included via optional front panel switch and built-in via BMC control. This function starts the Secure Erase process that removes data from non-volatile storage in all drives plus the BIOS.

The CPU module also provides an incredible 68 lanes of PCIe Gen 3 support for I/O expansion via its OpenVPX P1-P5.
